Sexuality and Borders: An International Symposium at NYU, April 4 +5

Sexuality & Borders 
A Two-Day International Symposium

Thursday/Friday, April 4-5
239 Greene Street, Floor 8

How do sexuality and borders intersect? What role does sexuality play in the production, maintenance and disruption of contemporary border regimes? How do borders as features of racial capitalism multiply inequalities via sexuality and, conversely, how is sexuality mediated through racialized border regimes? This two-day symposium will address these question by interrogating the role of sexuality in current border regimes. Together with participants from different scholarly backgrounds, we discuss how sexuality plays a key role in how borders are policed and managed ranging from moral panics about migrant sexuality and the pornotropic gaze of surveillance technologies, to media discourses about reproduction and contagion.
